PREFACE 

To the Alumni oj the University of Illinois. Greeting: 

It is now seven years since I sent to you a word of greeting with the first 
edition of the Alumni Record 

Our family, which was large then, has been increased by nearly fifty per 
cent. Students, faculties, and alumni have multiplied in much the same 
proportion. Wc have all worked together most cordially to advance the 
interests of Alma Mater, and, thanks to the liberality of the people of the 
oonmuuiweakh, we have seen the work prospering under our hands. 

It is now perfectly evident, if it never was before, that Illinois is destined 
to be one of the great universities of the world. If we and our successors 
perform our duty as we should, here will be a great center of moral and 
spiritual, as well as intellectual force. We may ultimately hope to rank in 
the time to come with the greatest institutions of Europe and older America 
as a center of light and life to our own day and generation. 

For this we may properly enough be devoutly thankful. It means per- 
sonally a great deal to each of us that our Alma Mater, which only a few 
years ago was like a grain of mustard seed, the smallest among its kind, 
has grown into a great tree, under the shade of whose branches the youth 
of all nations are coming to find refreshment for their souls and strength to 
serve the present age, wherever m the world their lot may be cast 

But the privilege of this joy and pleasure in the growth and influence 
of Alma Mater, which by its reflex effect contributes also to our own growth 
and influence, is matched by an obligation which rests upon us all alike to 
do whatever we can to assist this cherishing mother ot ours, to bring forth 
young men and women who will be of real value to the commonwealth and 
the nation and the world. 

A university which is not producing capable graduates, filled with a con- 
suming desire to be of service to their fellow men, may well be considered 
a menace rather than a benefit to the community. 

Tlie University of Illinois may indeed prove a curse to the commonwealth 
if its graduates are merely mediocre or if they use their trained skill merely 
to help themselves in exploiting their fellow citizens instead of doing every- 
thing they possibly can to assist the latter to the highest realization of their 
best selves. 

Stated in broad terms, the real object of university education is to furnish 
a suitable preparation for efficient social service. If it fails to do this it 
is not only futile but dangerous. 

We are earnestly striving to bring this fact home to the consciousness 
and the conscience of our student and instructing body. 

In this fundamental work of making the University of the utmost service 
to the state and the world, the alumni can be of the greatest possible aid 
and that in many ways. 

I 



2 Prbpace 

First of all, by taking thought you may help improve the quality of the 
student body in the University. You can do this by keeping your eyes 
steadily open for the really promising boys and girls among your acquaintances 
and in your community and calling their attention to the University of Illinois 
as a desirable place for their college and university work. If the intel- 
lectually sluggish or morally weak or spiritually blind students in any of 
our great universities could be replaced by those of spiritual insight, moral 
strength, and keen intellectuality, the nation would have great cause to 
rejoice. A university will benefit the community very directly in proportion 
to the number of really capable leaders it turns out; if these leaders be also 
animated by high moral ideals and aims. Send us then the best young people 
you can find in all the extent of your acquaintance and your neighborhood. 

Second, take a really lively interest in the important features of uni- 
versity life. Stand by the trustees and faculties in their efforts to raise the 
standards of moral, intellectual, and spiritual efficiency in the student body. 

It looks sometimes to a superficial observer as if the alumni, the most 
of them at any rate, who show any interest at all in university affairs, were 
interested in these things only as a means of winning intercollegiate contests 
and writing the University*, as they say, ''upon the athletic map." 

Athletics, in my opinion, should form an important element in student 
life in general *and in that of every individual student Intercollegiate 
athletics, if we can control them properly, are of very great value. But 
after all, they are, or should be, viewed and cultivated only as a means to 
an end. 

Our alumni should line up solidly on the Illinois platform, which is very 
simple, namely; that honest, straightforward athletics, participated in by all 
students and pursued in strict sulbordination to the great purposes for which 
a university exists,' are desirable and should be encouraged. But all excess 
in these matters should be discouraged. 

In general, the alumni should use their influence to help the faculty in 
insisting that the so-called student activities, athletics, social affairs, college 
papers, — all good in their way if kept within bounds — shall not interfere 
with the one great student activity par excellence, namely study; and with 
the one object of a university course, namely, the development of the student 
by study and exercise to a high grade of efficiency, physical, moral, and in- 
tellectual — an end which is often defeated — ^by the dissipation of energy and 
will power which so many students indulge in. 

Alumni members of the sororities and fraternities can be in this way of 
especial assistance through the natural influence they can exert over their 
young associates. 

Third, keep your Alma Mater in mind when you kre able to give money 
yourselves, or when you know men and women of wealth who are looking 
for good places to invest money so as to bring in the highest return to society. 
The people of the commonwealth will be much more willing to grant funds 
if they find that the alumni of the University are willing to contribute of their 
means, also to magnify and improve Alma Mater. 

Moreover, there are many things necessary or helpful to a great uni- 
versity for which the state will not as yet contribute money; or at least 



Preface 3 

not in sufficient sums, and these include many of the most important and 
finest sides of university organization and equipment 

You can help the University of Illinois to take its place among the really 
great institutions by giving yourselves, or getting others to give, or both, 
for these fundamental interests which are especially likely to suffer in all 
state universities, owing to the lack of appreciation on the part of the average 
man of their real importance. 

Fourth, keep your Alma Mater always in mind in another way. Talk 
about her to your friends and neighbors. Write about her and her work to 
the newspapers. If you hear slurring remarks concerning her, re-act at once 
and find out the real cause of such remarks. If they are based on fair grounds, 
if the criticism is just, let the University know what it is, so that we may 
mend our ways if they be bad. If injurious articles appear in the newspaper, 
reply to them or give us a chance to reply to them. Let no reflection on 
your Alma Mater pass unrebuked any more than you would one on your 
physical mother. 

You, the alumni, can create and maintain in your localities a favorable 
atmosphere in which the University of Illinois will flourish and rise to ever 
new heights of service and beauty. 

Fifth, give us here at the University the benefit, orally or in writing, of 
your continued suggestions as to how we may make the University of ever 
greater use to this commonwealth and the nation. I have received some 
most valuable aid in the form of letters of suggestion and counsel from our 
alumni. Send them on. They will all be considered, and as far as pos- 
sible heeded. 

Sixth, visit the University in person as often as you can. Come up to 
commencement and to the homecoming, and whenever else you can find it 
possible. Help us make this place a holy one for the human spirit, con- 
secrated to all the forces which magnify the human soul, which sharpen 
the intellect, increase knowledge and skill, refine the taste, fire the heart and 
strengthen the will, clarify and exalt the ideals of love and service to our 
fellow men. Let us make this a place to which coming generations will 
look with the same appreciative and admiring gaze as the thoughtful of the 
whole world now look to Oxford and Cambridge, Berlin and Paris, Harvard 
and Yale — ^when we shall be counted among the greatest of all because we 
have ministered the most 

Fraternally, 

Edmund J. James.

HISTORICAL SKETCH 

OF THE 

UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS 

The very germ from which the University of Illinois has developed may, 
perhaps, be found in the clause of the famous ordinance of 17Q7, 'Religion, 
morality and knowledge, being necessary to good government and the happi- 
ness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be en- 
ooiiraged'' From this germ has sprung abundant growth, yet in itself it is 
but the formulation of a general principle. It says that a certain thmf shall 
be done, but it does not answer the questions as to how or by whom it shall 
be done, or when, except that it shall be done forever. 

The first slight awakening to activity of this educational germ in Illinois 
occurred in 1804, when G>ngress made three districts in the Indiana Terri- 
tory and directed the Secretary of the Treasury to locate one township of 
land in each district for the use of a seminary of learning. At this time Illi- 
nois belonged to the Indiana Territory. Later, in 1818^ when Illinois became 
a state, a second township was given for the endowment of a seminary, and 
also one-sixth of 3% of the net proceeds of government lands sold after Jan- 
uary I, 1819.^ This latter donation to the state was to be "exclusively be- 
stowed upon a college or university." 

The people of Illinois, however, made no attempt to establish an institu- 
tion, of learning with these funds as a foundation until 1833. In that year 
they introduced a bill to incorporate an institution to be named the "Illinois 
University." The bill met with strong opposition, as Springfield was named 
for the location. Through jealousy, Vandalia stirred up the opposition of 
other neighboring cities ; friends of the in£ant colleges of McKendree, Shurt- 
le£F, and Illinois looked with alarm upon the establishment of such a state- 
endowed university; and, in addition, the men in control of state affairs, in 
order to avoid taxation, had already used all moneys received for the college 
fund and from the sale of the seminary lands for the current expenses of 
the government. And any proposition to cut off the use, in a similar way, 
of farther receipts from the same sources was decidedly unpopular. Besides 
th^ would have had to resort to taxation in order to restore the trust funds 
already misappropriated. Fortunatel^r perhaps for them, the bill met with 
defeat, and for several years after this the efforts made to establisji a state 
institution of higher learning were wholly unorganized. The people took 
little interest in 9ie matter and attempts were even made from time to time 
to divide up the college and seminary funds among the colleges of the state.' 

Again, in 1851, the senate passed "An Ace to Establish a State University," 
but upon re-consideration the bill was laid upon the table. An examination 
of this bill shows that the proposed universit]/ was to be a board of men to 
distribute the income of the college and seminary funds to the several col- 
leges of the state, upon conditions named, for the purpose of educating teach- 
ers for the common schools. 

After diis failure, hoiwever, a movement started to establish an institution

of a rather different character. The Buel Institute, an agricultural society 
of Putnam County, at its fair in September, determined to hold a fanners' 
convention at Granville in November '% take into consideration such meas- 
ures as might be deemed expedient to further the interests of the agricultural 
community, and particularly to take steps toward the establishment of an 
a^icultural university." Professor Jonathan Baldwin Turner of Jackson- 
ville was invited to be present and address the convention. The attitude of 
the leaders of this convention toward higher education and what they sought 
to obtain through their proposed universit>[ may be shown by quoting the 
resolutions presented by a committee, of which Professor Turner was diair- 
man. 

**RESOLVED, That we greatly rejoice in the degree of perfection to 
which our various institutions for the education of our brethren engaged in 
professional, scientific, and literary pursuits, have already attained, and in 
the mental and moral elevation which those institutions have given them, 
and in their consequent preparation and capacity for the ^t2Lt duties in the 
spheres of life in which they are enga^d; and that we will aid, in all ways 
consistent, for the still greater perfections of such institutions. 

"RESOLVED, That, as the representatives of the industrial classes, in- 
cluding all cultivators of the soil, artisans, mechanics, and merchants, we 
desire the same privileges and advantages for ourselves, our fellows, and our 
posterity in each of the several callings as our professional brethren enjoy 
in theirs; and we admit that it is our own fault that we do not also enjoy 
them. 

"RESOLVED, That, in our opinion, the institutions originally and pri- 
marily designed to meet the wants of the professional classes, as such, can- 
not, in the nature of things, meet ours, no more than the institutions we de- 
sire to establish for ourselves could meet theirs. Therefore, 

"RESOLVED, That we take immediate measures for the establishment 
of a university in the State of Illinois expressly to meet those felt wants of 
each and all the industrial classes of our State ; that we recommend the foun- 
dation of High Schools, Lyceums, Institutes, etc., in each of our counties, on 
similar principles, so soon as they may find it {practicable so to do. 

"RESOLVED, That, in our opinion, such institutions can never impede, 
but must greatly promote, the best interests of all those existing institutions." 

The prominence which this convention holds may be attributed largely 
to the bold and vigorous way in which Professor Turner discussed the ques- 
tions, "What do the industrial classes want" and "How can that want be 
supplied." His answer to the first question was, "They want, and they ought 
to have, the same facilities for understanding the true philosophy — ^the sci- 
ence and the art of their several pursuits, their life business — and of effi- 
ciently applying existing knowledge thereto and widening its domain, which 
the professional classes have long enjoyed in their pursuits." Replying to the 
second question, his belief was that die want neither could, nor should, be 
supplied by existing institutions which were desi^^ned to educate the profes- 
sional classes, and whose spirit was literary and intellectual as distinguished 
from the industrial and practical. He said the need was for a "university 
for the industrial classes in each of the states" and presented his "plan for 
the state university." 

This plan was quite elaborate. It was insisted upon that such a university 
would, of right, receive the college or university fund which the^ state held 
from the general government, and it was doubtless intended to claim also the 
seminary fund, though this is not stated distinctly. 

The address greatly aroused the convention, a report of which, including 
the address in full, was published and widely circulated. The Report of the 
Illinois State Board of Agriculture and the United States Patent office rejwrt 
of 1851 reproduced it; the New York Tribune and the New York Horticul- 
turist noticed it with approval; the attention of the National Ag^ricultural 
Association was called to it; the Philadelphia North American gave it edi- 



Historical Sketch 7 

tonal approval; etc, etc.^ Acceding to the request of the convention, the 
Governor, in summoning an extra session of the legislature to meet June 7, 
1852, laid before that body the subject of industrisu education as presented 
at the Granville meeting. 

At a second convention, held at Springfield, June 8, 1852, representatives 
and friends of some of the colleges attended and claimed that their institu- 
tions, rather than the proposed new university, legitimately should receive 
the college fund. They made a bdd for the seminary ftmd, agreeing to estab- 
lish teachers' departments if it were bestowed upon them. A discussion, 
sharp and angry, took place and the quarrel was transferred to the legisla- 
ture. The convention presented its land grant memorial and enlarged the 
plan for a university by adding a normal school, to be co-ordinate with the 
industrial department,' in order to meet the demand that the seminary fund 
be used in training teadiers for the common schools. The convention also 
urged in its memorial that a beginning be made at once to carry into effect 
eitiier the original plan or some modification of it which the General As- 
sembly might think preferable, "and if possible, on a sufficiently extensive 
scale to honorably justify a successful appeal to congress in conjunction with 
eminent citizens and statesmen in other states, who have expressed their readi- 
ness to oo-operate with us for an appropriation of public lands in each state 
in the Union for the appropriate endowment of universities for the liberal 
education of the industrial classes in their several pursuits in each state in 
the Union." 

In the legislature, the House referred the whole subject to its committee 
on education, and the college men won at first by securing from it a bill to 
divide both ftmds among the existing colleges. But the result was a drawn 
battle; for the bill was laid upon the table, and as if to be rid of a trouble- 
some contest, both Houses joined in a resolution asking authority from Con- 
gress to add both the college and seminary funds to the common school fund, 
so that the income from them might be forever given to the support of the 
public schools. 

A third convention was held in Chicajgo in November, 1852, at which the 
Industrial League of the State of Illinois, with Professor Turner for chief 
director, was organized, — the purpose being to promote the interests of the 
industrial classes. This convention published an address to the people of the 
state, prepared a memorial to the legislature, and arranged for petitions both 
to the legislature and to Congress. 

At a fourth convention held in Springfield, January 4, 1853, again the re- 
quest for an industrial university was set forth and the legislature was urged 
to memorialize Congress, asking for each state an appropriation of public 
lands, of a value not less than $500,000 for the liberal endowment of an in- 
dustrial university. 

In 1854 Governor Matteson proposed the subject of industrial education 
to the legislature for consideration at its special session. In the following 
January, 1855, the Industrial League held a fifth convention in Springfield 
and a bill was introduced in the legislature for "An Act to Incorporate the 
Trustees of the Illinois University." The trustees were to locate the univer- 
sity and to receive from the state the college and seminary funds for its en- 
dowment, on condition that they raised a like amount from other sources. 
They were also to receive any grants which Congress might make for in- 
dustrial education. The plan of the proposed institiption was broad and 
liberal as it appears in the bill, which did not, however, obtain any definite 
action from either House. 

There was little apparent sympathy in Congress with this subject, which 
was arousing such widespread interest, perhaps due to the fact that in 1854 
President Pierce had vetoed a bill proposing land grants to the states for 

^UniT. Studies V. IV, No. i, Nov., 1910, The Origin of the Land Grant Act of 1862

establishing asylums for the indigent insane, and in this veto had used Ian- 
guag:e which showed clearly that his action would be the same toward a bill 
providing land grants to the states for colleges of agriculture and science. 

With the coming of a new president in 1857, friends of industrial educa- 
tion again bestirred themselves, and their measure was House Bill No. 2 
introduced by Justin S. Morrill of Vermont, a man from oat of the older 
states which had not thus far benefited by the land grant of the federal 
government It met with strong opposition, and the bill was finally defeated 
at the hands of President Buchanan who interposed his veto, largely upon 
constitutional grounds,^ and it was considered useless to seek for further 
action by G)ngress while Buchanan was president. The bill provided for a 
grant to the several states of 20,000 acres for each member of Congress from 
the state, according to the apportionment to be made after the census of i860. 
The states were to establish within five years not less than one college, where 
the leading object should be to teach agriculture and the mechanic arts, 
without the exclusion of other scientific and classical studies. 

Again earl^ in December, 1861, Mr. Morrill renewed the agitation in 
favor of a national grant of land to each state in the Union for the promotion 
of education in agriculture and the mechanic arts, and secured the passage 
of the so-called Morrill bill by both houses. It was approved by President 
Lincoln July 2, 1862. The act was substantially the same as the previous 
bill The diief differences were a grant of 30,000 acres of land for each 
member of Congress instead of 20,000; the exclusion of states in rebellion; 
and the requirements that the states accept within two years instead of five, 
and that instruction be given in military science. The grant was to con- 
stitute a perpetual fund, the income of which was to be "inviolably appro- 
priated" by the state "to the endowment, support, and maintenance of, at 
least, one college, where the leading object shall be, without excluding other 
scientific and classical studies, and including military tactics, to teach such 
branches of learning as are related to agriculture and the mechanic arts, in 
such manner as the legislatures of the states may respectively prescribe, in 
order to promote the liberal and practical education of the industrial classes 
in the several pursuits and professions in life."' 

The results of this movement may reasonably be looked upon with satis- 
faction and pride, and great honor is surelv due to Professor Turner. In a 
study by President James entitled ''The Origin of the Land Grant Act of 
1862" may be found conclusive evidence that to "Jonathan B. Turner, the 
Illinois professor and farmer, belongs the credit of having first formulated 
clearly the plan of a national grant of land to each state in the Union for the 
promotion of education in agriculture and mechanic arts, and of having in- 
augurated the agitation that made possible the passage of the so-called Mor- 
rill Act To his memory should be raised a monument in each of the sixty- 
eight institutions which have grown out of his effort or whose power and 
usefulness have been increased by these appropriations.'' 

It is well within the rules of propriety that Illinoisans congratulate them- 
selves that the movement so full of good to the nation, to labor, and to youth 
everywhere, had its inception here in Illinois; that from Illinois came the 
demand upon the federal government; that to an Illinois senator is due the 
first movement in its favor in Congress; and that an Illinois president gave 
it life by affixing his signature. 

On February 14, I863, the legislature formally accepted the provisions made 
by Congress and in due time the land scrip for the 480,000 acres, to which 
Illinois was entitled, was sent to the governor. 

But even after the passage of the bill there was much controversy over 
the funds thus made available for educational purposes. Some wished to 
divide the fund among several agn'icultural colleges; while others preferred 
one college and favored having it made a part of an already existing institu-

tion. Questions of this nature caused much bitter strife. Those who had 
struggled for the passage of this bill had sou^ to establish one institution 
and to make it unlike the existing colleges of the state, and entirely separate 
from them. Naturally, they deprecated any attempt to divide the lund or to 
use it in establishing departments in existing colleges. The views of this 
party were embodied in a bill, drafted by a committee of which, Jonathan B. 
Turner was chairman, and substantially similar to the diarter finally granted 
in 1867. Resolutions were adopted by the State Agricultural and the State 
Horticultural Societies insisting upon one institution, and opi)osing an effort 
to divide the fund, or to use it in establishing departments in existing col- 
leges. They proposed that the location should be made, after the considera- 
tion of bids» at that place which seemed to offer the greatest facilities. 

^ The General Assembly of 1867 passed a bill giving any county, city, town- 
ship, or incorporated town, power to vote bonds and to make proposals for 
securing the location of the University. The people of Champaign were early 
alert to the idea of securing the institution and put forth every effort to 
obtain the prize ; nor were the opposing counties by any means idle. In their 
efforts to defeat this county, the latter sent out warnings and appeals through 
circulars and newspaper articles to the people of the state, in which ridicule 
and derision of the claims of Champaign County formed the burden. The 
seminary property, a large brick building which formed a part of the offer 
of Champaign County, received the label 'The Champaign Elephant," and 
this epithet was well kept before the people of the state; certain Chicago 
papers lending ready and nimble hands in the propagation of this and other 
like derogatory attaicks. Champaign Cotmty, on the other hand, lost no op- 
portunity to gain influence and to make friends for its cause. After a not 
altogether creditable contest among the several competing counties — Cham- 
paign, Logan, McLean, and Morgan — ^the legislature accepted the offer of 
Champaign County, and, subject to certain conditions, located the University 
at Urbana. 

Governor Oglesby approved the act incorporating the Illinois Industrial 
University February 28^1, 1867. This act provided that five trustees were to 
be appointed from each of the three grsLnd judicial districts of the state, and 
one trustee from ead^ of the thirteen congressional districts, who wi^ the 
governor, superintendent of public instruction, president of the State Agri- 
cultural Society, and the Regent, when elected, as ex officio members, should 
constitute the Board of Trustees. In pursuance of the law, the Board met 
for the first time in the Representatives Hall in Springfield on March 12th. 
1867. Governor Oglesby, the temporary president of the Board, prescribed 
the oath to each member, according to the constitution of 1848^ then in force. 
This oath, amon^ other things, solemnly pledged each man not to engage in 
dueling^ during his term of office, and declared that each had not been guilty 
of duding since the adoption of that constitution. 

Under the law, the first business to be transacted was the election of the 
Regent, or President, of the University. The Board chose Reverend John 
Milton Gregory, a man of the broadest and most enlijghtened views, who 
at that time was President of Kalamazoo College, Michigan. 

The Regent being elected, the trustees drew for their terms of office, as 
the act provided that one-third should serve for a term of two years, one- 
third for a term of four years, and one-third for a term of six years.* At 
this first meeting the Board also passed the following resolution : 

"Resolved, That sensible of our dependence on the Divine blessing in 
the great work in which we are engaged it should be a standing order of this 
Board to commence each day's proceedings by the Word of God and 
prayer." The motion carried unanimously.* 

The new^ Board of Trustees, including Regent Gregory, was largely chosen 
from the laity and clergy of the Baptist church, and for some time fear was

entertained that the new university would become largely a denominational 
school However, this fear was groundless, as the bias in the actions of the 
Board, which many looked for, did not appear, and in Dr. Gregory's long 
administration it would be difficult to point out anything in his action tend- 
ing in that direction. 

His acceptance of the position as Regent of the University did not occur 
until after he had made a trip to Chicago and to Champaign. He says that 
in both -these places only one opinion was expressed to him, and that was, 
that this new institution was to be "the grandest university on the American 
continent" He accepted the election and became the first Recent, of what 
was then the Illinois Industrial University, serving as its executive head from 
March 12, 1867, a year before the institution was formally opened, until 1880. 

John Milton Gregory was bom at Sand Lake, New York, July 6, 1822. He 
was a graduate of Union College, and a pupil of Eliphalet Nott, one of the 
greatest educators of his day. He studied law from 1836 to 1848, and later, 
after some time spent in the study of theology, he entered the Bapiist min- 
istry. For a time he taught in a secondary school in Midiigan, and was in 
1858 elected State Superintendent of Public Instruction of that state. He 
held this position until 1863, when he was elected to the presidency of Kala- 
mazoo College. After serving this College four years, he entered upon the 
duties of Regent of the University. 

Dr. Gregory was a man of high ideals and broad sympathies, and his 
personal influence upon the student body was marked. His vision of what 
an institution such as a State University should be was far reaching.^ 

Durin|g: tbe year following his election to the regency, and previous to 
the opening of the University, not only were the plans for the institution 
pushed forward at the seat of the proposed university, but Dr. Gr^ory also 
went about over the state, seeking to, interest young men everywhere in secur- 
ing a higher education. Many of the addresses which he made were delivered 
from the rear end of some farmer's wa^on at a county fair. To many young 
men who afterwards came to the University and who have since been of 
great value to their state, the appeal came from the lips of this college presi- 
dent on some such occasion.' 

One of the first great tasks of Dr. Gregory was to prepare an outline of 
the general aims of the new university, and a course of study. This he did, 
as chairman of a committee appcMnted by the Board. The following depart- 
ments and courses of study were suggested to be developed as soon as prac- 
ticable. 

I. The Agricultural Department, embracing — 
T. The course in Agriculture proper 
2. The course in Horticulture and I^andscape Gardening 
II. The Polytechnic Department, embracing — 

1. The course in Mechanical Science and Art 

2. The course in Civil Engineering 

3. The course in Mining and Metallurgy 

4. The course in Architecture and Fine Arts 

III. The Military Department, embracing — 
T. The course in Military Engineering 
2. The course in Tactics 

IV. The Department of Chemistry and Natural Science. 
V. The Department of Trade and Commerce 

VI. The Department of General Science and Literature, embracing — 

1. The course in Mathematics 

2. The course in Natural History, Chemistry, etc. 

3. The course in English Language and Literature 

4. The course in Modem Language and Literature

The report of this course of study committee caused considerable excite- 
ment among the people. The idea of teaching ''English Literature" and ''An- 
cient and Modem Languages and Literatures," proved as the red flag to the 
infuriated bull of the story. The institution was denounced as no more than 
one of the "old colleges" and the question was derisively asked, "Why add, 
by a public grant of lands, to these old institutions, of which the people al- 
ready have too many?" It is probably due to the warfare aroused by this 
course of stucW that only ^^ were enrolled at the oj^enin^ of the University 
on Mach 2, 1868, and of these, 45 were from Champaign County. Untrue and 
sensational tales were told and believed, greatly to the discredit of the new 
Universi^. Many demanded that the dassics should be excluded from the 
course of study; others that they should be tolerated, but not cherished. By 
some it was claimed that the students of belle-lettres would constitute an 
aristocratic class in the institution ; that the students of agriculture and me- 
chanic arts would be looked upon as inferiors. The dissatisfaction showed 
itself in newspaper articles and in public addresses; dissensions took place 
in the Board of Trustees ; and finally, in 1870, a convention of delegates from 
the several county agricultural societies met at Bloomington to consider the 
past, present, and future condition of Uie Illinois Industrial University. Dr. 
Gregory attended this convention and delivered an address. He explained at 
length the act creating the University and the course of study, answered 
some reasonable questions, and as a result very much improved the existing 
feeling. They appointed a committee to visit and investigate the institution 
and report thereon. This committee's report served greatly to strengthen the 
University. 

The subjects actually taught at its opening were algebra, geometry, nat- 
ural philosophy, history, rhetoric, and Latin, and the work was carried on 
in the brick building which was the donation of Champaign County. This 
building also served partly as a dormitory and came to be known as the 
Old Dormitory building. 

Owing to die belief that it is the separation of the theoretical and prac- 
tical which renders so much education mere "book learning," the Board of 
Trustees decided that a manual labor^ system should be thoroughly tried, 
and all students, not excused for physical disability, were required to labor 
from one to three hours a day. The students went put in squads, under 
their military officers, and under the ^neral supervision of members of 
the faculty. The maximum compensation of such labor was eight cents 
an hour. Many students worked voluntarily over hours, and received for 
such over-work twelve and a half cents an hour. In a short time, however, 
labor was made wholly voluntary, except as it was a part of some course 
of study, as the shop practice in the course of mechanical science and art. 
In matters of discipline Dr. Gregory believed in treating the students 
as men, and in appealing to their manhood for the maintenance of good 
order. His love of freedom showed itself in the establishment of the Stu- 
dents' Government system, first tried in 1870. By permission of the faculty, 
the general assembly of the students was organized, and a constitution 
adopted providing for the election of a president, vice-president, secretary, 
and marshal. There was also a senate of 21 members and a court, con- 
sisting of a chief justice and two associate judges. Under this constitution, 
the senate enacted laws, which became valid only when approved by the 
Regent of the University. All offenses against these laws were tried before 
the students' court, and punished by fines according to the claims of offence. 
Cases requiring the severer penalties of suspension or expulsion from the 
University were referred to the faculty, and students refusing to pay the 
»Rep. of Univ. of HI., 1868, p. 50, 



13 Univbrsitt of Illinois 

fines imposed by the students' government were suspended from University 

Erivileges.^ For a time this system of ^vemment worked admirsd)ly, but 
iterpolitics crept in and perverted justice, and the system was abandoned 
in 1883. 

The faculty for the first term consisted of four instructors, including 
the Regent, two assistants, a head farmer, and two non-resident lecturers. 
A decided contrast in numbers with our faculty of to-day! The two towns 
likewise presented a very different appearance. Street pavements were 
laid some twenty years later than this ; the buildings, for the most part, 
were of the cheaper grade of scantling frames; and the streets themselves 
were more often adorned by wood piles than by sidewalks. Stock of all 
kinds ran at large in both towns and in the country, so that all houses were 
securely fenced to keep out the predatory town cows and hogs. 

Women were not at first admitted to the University. In 1869 the ques- 
tion of their admission was raised, and after a lengthy discussion, upon 
the motion of Mr. John S. Johnson,' it was settled in the affirmative in 
March, 1870. The story is told that a group of boys, much interested in 
the outcome of the discussion, listened to the deliberations of the trustees 
through a friendly stove-pipe hole, and when the vote was finally taken, 
and announced as favorable to the young women, an approving shout was 
heard from the gallant fellows above.* Girls ever since have been thus 
kindly received, and their presence has come to be viewed as a matter of 
course. In the first year, twenty-two were registered; while during the 
year I9ii-'i2, their attendance had increased to 1,007, out of the total number 
of 5,200, or. nearly one-fifth of the whole enrollment of the University of 
Illinois. Thus their early kindly reception seems to have been appreciated. 
In spite of the prominence of agriculture in the state and the important 
part whicli the farmers took in the industrial movement, the agricultural 
department languished. The proportion of ag^cultural students during the 
first decade was insignificant. 

Meanwhile the engineering courses developed rapidly. Stillman W. Rob- 
inson, elected to the professorship of Mechanical Engmeering in 1869, may 
be regarded as the real founder of the College of Engineering. He appre- 
ciated the educational possibilities of shop woHc and made it a part of the 
engineering instruction. In January, 1870, a mechanical shop was fitted up 
with tools and machinery. Dr. Peabody, in speaking of it, says, "It is prob- 
able that tool or machme instruction was first given in America at the 
Worcester Free Institute, which was formally inaugrurated in November. 
1868, six months after the inauguration of this University. I have not 
been able to find that Professor Robinson's practice shop had any other 
predecessor in this country." In the summer of 1871 the mechanical build- 
ing and drill hall (burned on June 9, 1909) were erected and equipped for 
students' shop work in both wood and iron, and for military drill. 

The legislature, in its session the same year, authorized the construction 
of the main University building, according to plans and estimates laid before 
it, at a cost of $150,000. They appropriated $75,000. and provided that the 
$75,000 additional should be appropriated at the next meeting. Work on 
the building was commenced, but the le^slature failed to make the expected 
additional appropriation. A broad, white streak on the west wall remains 
the indelible record of the time when the work could go no further. It 
was deemed advisable to provide temporarily for the continuance of the 
work by the sale of the Champaign County bonds. This was done, and the 
work was resumed. Every effort was made that this money should be 
repaid by the State, but such efforts were unavailing. The building was fin- 
ished and dedicated December 10, 1873.*

The other of the larger buildings erected during this period was the 
Chemical Laboratory, which was authorized by the legislature of 1877 and 
dedicated at the commencement in 1878. Its cost, when fitted and fur- 
nished, was $40,000. There were other smaller appropriations made during 
the period, which were used in the construction of a house and bam on the 
horticultural grounds, a gardener's house, a greenhouse, and a bam for the 
agricultural dc^iartment. 

A re-organization of the Board of Trustees occurred in 1873. The num- 
ber of members was reduced from 31 to" 11 — the Governor and the President 
of the State Board of Agriculture, ex oMcio, and nine others, who were still 
appointed by the Governor.* Beginning at this time also, the President of 
the Board was chosen by the members from among their own number for 
a term of one year. At the meeting held July 10, 1873, Emory G)bb was 
elected the new president. He gave much time and attention to the affairs 
of the University for more than a quarter of a century. 

At the end of the first five years the organization of the University con- 
sisted of four colleges — the College of Agriculture, of Engineering, of Nat- 
ural Science, and of Literature and Science. These were sub-divided as 
follows: 

The College of Agriculture embraced the Schools of Agriculture and Horticulture. 

The College of I^^neering included the four Schools of Mechanical, Civil, and Mining 
Engineering and Architecture. 

The College of Natural Science included the School of Chemistry and the School of 
Katnral History. 

The College of Literature and Arts and Science embraced the School of Modem Lan- 
guage and Literature and the School of Ancient Language and Literature. 

Besides these, there were the Schools of Commercial Science, the School 
of Military Science, and a School of Domestic Economy. The instruction 
in the last named school began with the college year i872-'73. The full 
course in the beginning very nearly corresponded with that in the School 
of English and Modem Language, except that in the second and third years 
lectures on topics of domestic economy took the place of the mathematical 
studies. This was the first School of Domestic Economy of high grade, and 
with a complete course, organized in the United States, if not the first 
in the world 

Admission requirements were at first slight in all departments; but 
fewer than half the students of the earlier years were able to meet them, 
and members of the faculty found themselves overloaded with elementary 
work to the detriment of the higher instruction. In accordance with Dr. 
Gregor/s views, the entrance requirements were gradually advanced, and 
in 1875 & preparatory year was instituted which later developed into the 
Academy. Csuididates in the preparatory classes had to be fifteen years 
of aj^e and be able to pass satisractory examinations in arithmetic, geography, 
English grammar, and United States history. Like other institutions of the 
Middle West, lUinods, after some experiments!, adopted the '^accredited 
school'' system. The first school so accredited was the Princeton High 
School, and by 1880 tiie number had increased to twenty-two.* 

In the early days of the institution, the elective system predominated. 
Although liberty had its risks, it was "not thought useful or right to at- 
tempt to urge every student, without regard to his capacity, tastes, or prac- 
tical wants, to take some lengthened curriculum.' But gradually this 
mtem of complete freedom was modified, and students who desired to 
*^fraduate," were required to complete some one of the courses outlined 
in the catalog. The introduction of academic degrees at the commence- 
ment in 1878 strengthened this tendency. Distinct courses were then defined, 
to each of which a degree was given. 

According to the original state law, the usual diplomas and degrees

oould not be given by the University; certificates showing the studies pur- 
sued and the attainments in each were given instead. But this was a new 
dispensation which the great world was unwilling to accept The ^nd- 
uates found their paper not current in the market The name of the msti- 
tution was persistently misinterpreted. The Regent had to be at all times 
prepared to show that he was not only a trustee of the people but also 
their servant. While it is a matter of record that when the earlier pro- 
fessors went to the State Teachers' Association and sought admission to 
the college section, it was denied them because an institution that gave no 
degrees had no rightful claim to call itself a college/ 

In 1877 the alumni petitioned the legislature to give the University author- 
ity to grant degrees. The authority was given, and a fee of $5.00 ruled to 
be charged for each diploma conferring a degree.* Graduation with a cer- 
tificate was still permitted to those who had obtained the requisite number 
of term credits, but not in subjects prescribed for any particular degree. 

The social life during this period was, in the main, simple and democratic. 
A number of student organizations were formed, many of which are still 
in existence. The earliest literary societies were the Adelphic and Philo- 
mathean organized in March, 1869. Two years later the women of the 
University organized the Alethenai. In the same year, 1871, the University 
band furnished its first music for commencement The first student pub- 
lication was made in November, 1871, and was known as The Student and 
published monthly. The paper two years later changed its name to The 
Illini. The Young Men's Christian organization dates back to February, 
1873; also the organization of the Agricultural Society to the same year. 
In 1874, there was organized an association for the advancement of telegraphy, 
known as the Illinois Industrial University Telegraphic Association, instru- 
ments on the line numbered twenty-five, and the central ofl&ces were open for 
practice all hours of the day. 

Not only were societies formed in this early period which still exist, 
many of them, but also a number of instructors were appointed who are 
still in the service of the University. The Vice President, Thomas Jonathan 
Burrill, came to the University on the 20th of April, 1868, as a special 
assistant, to relieve Regent Gregory of certain algebra classes, and has 
held many and varied positions of trust since that date. In the fall of 
1868 Professor Samuel Walker Shattuck came to the University as Assist- 
ant Professor of Mathematics and Instructor in Military Tactics. Three 
years later, he became Professor of Mathematics and continued to 
serve the University in this department to Sept i, J9I2. He has also filled 
various other positions. He was Professor of Civil Engineering for the 
year 1869-70; he was Acting President for six months in 1873; and served 
as the first Vice President from 1889 to 1894. He became the financial man- 
ager in 1873. A high sense of honor and true loyalty in service have been 
embodied in his career, and the University' very appropriately showed its 
appreciation of him by conferring upon him in June, 1912, the highest honor 
it can bestow, the degree of LL.D. 

No sketch of the University would be complete without the mention 
of Edward Snyder, who was appointed at the same November meeting in 
1868 as Professor Shattuck. His primary interest was in modem lan- 
guages, but the exigencies of the time compelled him to teach a great variety 
of subjects as remote as bookkeeping and military tactics. He was a most 
sympathetic adviser and friend of the students. He continually gave or lent 
them money; and in 1899, three years after his retirement from active ser- 
vice, he gave to the University $12,000, to be loaned to needy students. He 
died in 1903. 

Professor Nathan Clifford Ricker began his work as Instructor in Archi- 
tecture in the University in March, 1873. He has twice acted as Dean of

the College of Engineer mg. Many of the University huildings have been 
oxistructed after plans drawn by him. Professor Ira Osbom BaJcer came 
to the University as Assistant in Civil Engineering and Physics in Sep- 
tember, 1874, after having graduated the spring before. Thus four of the 
present faculty have been connected with the institution approximately forty 
years. « 

The period of Dr. Gregory's administration is not marked as one of 
great prosperity financially. The University was the owner of 480,000 acres of 
land scrip. The Board of Trustees proposed at first to locate 50,000 acres 
of its land scrip, and to sell the rest; but the pressure for funds was so 
great that it located but 25,000 acres, about 9,000 being in the state of 
Nebraska and 16,000 in the state of Minnesota. The large amount of land 
scrip thrown upon the market by this and other land grant universities had 
greatly depreciated its value/ and the 455,000 acres sold brought but $319- 
178.87, or seventy cents an acre. 

As fast as the cash was received it was invested in such securities as 
the law demanded, and the rate of interest then current in the state, eight 
to ten per cent, yielded from $25,000 to $30,000 per annum, for the payment 
of current expenses of instruction. The money panic of 1873 did not 
seriously affect the finances of the University until about 1877, when debtors 
began to refimd their loans at lower rates of interest. In this way, the income 
of the University was largely diminished. During the year 1878 the expend- 
itures were found to be $3,500 in excess of the income. No surplus funds 
were on hand, no prospect of increasing the interest on the endowment fund 
— something had to be done — so it seemed best to reduce somewhat the 
salaries of the teaching force. Dr. Gregory suggested that the reduction 
should begin with him, not because his salary was the largest, but rather 
because he would prefer to see his own pay reduced 20 or 25 per cent 
than that the already too meager compensation of his associates should be 
lessened. A reduction was made of the $3,500 by taking small amounts 
from the various salaries and departments, and at the request of the Regent 
$400 from his salary. Places which became vacant were left so; certain 
departments were cut off — those of mining, commerce, and domestic econ- 
omy; the fees of students were raised; and economy in its most rigid form 
had to be practiced everywhere. 

Meanwhile the internal condition of affairs was gloomy. The cordial 
agreement which had existed between the students and the Regent and 
faculty became strained, and finally open rebellion occurred. 

Under these discouraging circumstances Dr. Gregory submitted his resig- 
nation at the June commencement, 1880, and it was immediately accepted by 
the Board. He spent the remainder of his life in Wasliington, D. C, where 
he died October 20, I898. On Sunday, the 23d of October of that year, a 
memorial convocation was held in the old University Chapel, and his body 
was laid to rest in the ground just west of the main University building. 
In speaking of him in a resolution, the alimmi of the University, gathered 
in Chicago, expressed themselves as follows: 

"Full of years and honor, like a shock of ripened com in an abundant 
year, our beloved instructor and friend, Dr. John M. Gregory, the founder 
and first Regent (President) of our Alma Mater, has been gathered to his 
fathers.'" 

Dr. Gregory served the University for thirteen long and hard years, 
at a time when wisdom, foresight, promptness, courage — ^all the character- 
istics of a competent leader — ^were in most urgent demand, and in none of 
these respects was he found wanting. 

Upon his resignation the Board appointed Dr. Selim Hobart Peabody, 
formerly Professor of Physics and Mechanical Engineering, Regent tro 
tempore. Dr. Peabody was bom at Rockingham, Vermont, August 20, 1829.

He spent one year in the Public Latin School of Boston, but owing to his 
father's death, circumstances compelled him to leave school and help cam 
a livelihood for himself and others. After working five years he entered 
the University of Vermont at the age of nineteen and graduated in 1852. 
The next two years were spent, first as principal of the Burlin^on, Vt, 
high school, and then as teacher in the Collegiate Institute at Fairfax, Vt. 
In 1854 he became Professor of Mathematics and Physics fti the Polytechnic 
College of Philadelphia; three years later he accepted the position of Chief 
Qerk in the United States land office at Eau Claire, Wisconsin; in 1859 
he took charge of the city schools at Fond du Lac, and in 1862 he became 
superintendent of schools of Racine, in the same state. Three years later 
he became an instructor in the City high school of Chicago. While here 
he also organized and directed the evening high school. On March 11, 1868— 
Inauguration Day — he was offered the professorship of mechanical science 
and engineering in the Illinois Industrial University. This he declined, 
but in 1871 he went to the Massachusetts Agricultural College at Amherst 
as Professor of Physics and Civil Engineering, where he remained three years, 
and then returned to his old position in Chicago. In 1877 he received the 
degfree of doctor of philosophy from the University of Vermont. On the 
loth of October, 1878, he accepted the appointment of Professor of Mechan- 
ical Engineering and Physics in the Illinois Industrial University. He 
served in this capacity until the close of March, 1880, when he resigned 
to accept the worfe of editor-in-chief of what later became the International 
Cyclopedia. On July 27th, of this year, he was reappointed to the same 
professorship and made Regent pro tempore, assuming the new duties on 
August isth. The following March, 1881, he was elected Regent of the 
University and continued as such until he presented his resignation June 
10, 1891.^ 

Almost all of his adult life, at the time of his election to the regency, 
had been spent in teaching and accompanying activities. It is said that at 
the time of his appointment he could have taught successfully any sub- 
ject offered in the curriculum of the institution. 

Dr. Peabody encountered numerous annoyances and difficulties during 
his regime. In the beginning, many of the students assumed a questioning 
attitude toward the new Regent. The seniors were said to have held a 
meeting to determine whether they would return or not, but kindly con- 
sented to give the new man a trial.* The first serious hitch came from a 
clash between certain secret fraternities and the court of the organized 
students* government As a result, the Regent recommended, and the trustees 
approved, a ruling that no student could enter the University until he had 
pledged himself not to join a fraternity, and that no student should be grad- 
uated until he had certified that he had not belonged to any fraternity while 
in the University. The adoption of these rules disclosed the existence of 
four such organizations. Their members petitioned the faculty to repeal 
the rules, but the faculty only turned their petitions over to the Board, 
which recommended that their requests be refused. The rule was stren- 
uous, and was not repealed until the September board meeting, 1891." From 
the time of the passage of the rule, more or less antagonism existed, directed 
chiefly toward the Regent, whose duty it was to execute the mandate. Unfor- 
tunately for him, he was a man sufficiently sensitive to criticism to find it 
discomforting. 

Another occurrence, trivial in itself, also inflicted no little injury. One 
of the cadet captains in the military organization failed to receive^ an exam- 
ination grade sufficient to permit him to continue in his official position. His 
brother officers undertook to compel his re-instatement by entering up<Hi 
what we would call a strike. Dissatisfied students were allowed to take

their grievances to the Board of Trustees, and it in turn sat as a sort of 
hig^ court, and in effect, put the faculty upon trial. In this case, a matter 
which should have been adjusted without great difficulty, became unneces- 
sarily burdensome. 

President Peabody systematized administrative affairs, instituted im- 
proved bookkeeping and gathered up loose ends everjrwhere. He person- 
ally attended to numerous details. Dr. T. J. Burrill, in wrking of his work, 
said that "throughout his administration he had no stenographer. The 
University did not own during his time a typewriting machme. The offi- 
cial correspondence was mainly conducted in his own handwriting. There 
was no registrar. At the beginning of each term he personally issued class 
permits and at the close recorded class grades. Aside from his headship 
in the department of Mechanical Engineenng and Physics, he taught classes 
(during different terms) in Mechanics and Hydraulics and Mental Science, 
the latter subject being required of all, seniors. It is little wonder that 
there was not much time for effective campaigning outside or for dreaming 
of future greatness." 

But in spite of many obstacles, and in spite of the fact that these were 
days of small things educationally, progress was made during this adminis- 
tration. In 1879^ there were 434 students (reduced in iS3o-8i to 379), 
and 26 teachers of all grades, of whom 15 were of professorial rank; in 
1890-91, there were 519 students and 40 instructors, 24 of whom were of 
professorial rank. Thus there was a gain in students of 19.6 per cent and 
in the corps of instruction of 53.9 per cent, and for those having professorial 
rank, 60 per cent. For the first named year the total income from all sources 
was about $60,650; for the last named, $124,600, or 146 per cent gain. The 
total legislative appropriation for the session of 1879 was $2^,500; that for 
the session of 1891 was $147,200. This latter figure included $70,000 for the 
Natural History Building, but excluding this, 8ie gain was $51,700, or 203 
per cent* 

Before President Peabod/s administration, all state appropriations had 
been clearly for specified purposes and exclusive of salaries for instruction. 
At the legislative session of 1881, the trustees resolved to ask, in addition 
to the usual sums, for an appropriation for the current expenses of instruc- 
tion. The l^slature granted the sum of $11400 to help cover the amount 
of the loss stiffered by the University because of the reduction in the interest 
on its investments.* The next legislature was asked for $14,000, for the 
same purpose, and the grant was made. During the biennial periods which 
followed, the sums of $24,000, $32,000,' and $40,000 were allowed, respect- 
ively. 

Appropriations for buildings were small, and were slow in coming. After 
much persuasion and political wire pulling on the part of the Regent and his 
local aids, $10,000 was secured for a Drill Hall in 1889. This caused great 
rejoicing. During the year the students purchased and placed in the Drill 
Hall $125 worth of gymnastic apparatus^ the money being for the most part 
the proceeds of an athletic entertainment ^ven the year before in Champaign. 
Those who at that time wished to practice m the gymnasium paid 50 cts. a term 
for a ticket, and with the money so secured, instructors were employed from 
among the students. At the next General Assembly, Regent Peabody, al- 
most unaided by others connected with the University, succeeded in winning 
suffidentlv the good will of the legislators to cause the passage of a bill 
carrying $70,000 for a new Natural History building. 

In 1887, a law was passed making membership in the Board of Trustees 
elective, at a general state election, and restoring the Superintendent of Pub- 
lic Instruction as an ex officio member, and so there are to-day three ex officio

and nine elective members. The change in the manner of election helped ma- 
terially to bring the institution before the people of the state. It also made 
it possible for women to serve on the Board. None became members, how- 
ever, until November, 1904, when Mrs. Lucy L. Flower was elected. It is 
interesting to note that she received many times the number of votes that 
have been cast for any other woman as a candidate for office in this state.' 
While she was the first woman regularly elected a member of the Board. 
Mrs. Dr. Julia Holmes Smith really served a short time before her, having 
been apoointed by the Governor to fill an unexpired term. 

In 1084 the opportunity seemed favorable to begin the sale of the 9,000 
acres of land located in Nebraska, and by judicious management the endow- 
ment fund was thus raised from about $320,000 to upwards of $450,000.' The 
sale of this land stretched out over a period of twenty-five years, the last 
being sold only in 1909. The sale of the land in Minnesota began at a some- 
what later date, and while all is now sold (1912), the pa3rments are not yet 
quite all made. The total endowment fund received by the University up 
to March i, 1912, from the sale of its land scrip amounted to $647,401.53. 
The pressing need for funds and the dislike for paying taxes upon this land 
caused much of it to be sold at a very low price. 

In 1887 the federal government again took up the work it had begun in 
1862. By the passage of the Hatch Act, approved March 12, of that year, 
the national government appropriated $15,000 per annum to each state for the 
purpose of establishing and maintaining, in connection with the colleges found- 
ed upon congressional act of 1862, agricultural experiment stations "to aid in 
acquiring and diffusing among the people of the United States useful and 
practical information on subjects connected with agriculture, and to promote 
scientific investigation and experiment respecting the principles and applica- 
tions of agricultural science." President Peabody took a prominent part in 
the discussions of the convention which led to the passage of this act. Under 
its provision, the Agricultural Experiment Station of Illinois was founded 
in 1888 and placed under the direction of the trustees of the University, and 
a part of the University farm, with buildings, was assigned for its use. State 
appropriations have been added to the federal grants to the Station, until 
its revenues have become the largest of those of similar institutions through- 
out the world.' 

In 1890, by another measure known as the Morrill College Aid Act, the 
Congress of the United States made further appropriations for the land grant 
colleges. Under this enactment each such college or university received the 
first year $15,000, the second $16,000, and thereafter was to receive $1,000 a 
year additional to the amount of the preceding year, until the amount reached 
$25,000, which sum was to be paid yearly thereafter. The use of this ftmd, 
although restricted, made possible indirectly a considerable development in 
the humanities as well as in the natural sciences.* 

As the institution developed, the name the "Illinois Industrial University" 
was felt to be a serious handicap. It was never understood in the sense 
originally intended. The promoters had meant to establish an institution in 
which a liberal education should be offered, and one which should be par- 
ticularly suited to those engaged in industrial pursuits, in distinction to the 
professions as they were then recognized. But the prevailing impression 
gained for the name was that manual labor was a prominent Mature. The 
name came to be considered a serious obstacle to the institution, and a bill 
was introduced in the legislature of 1885 for its change. The application for 
a change of name met with bitter opposition, especially in the senate, many 
of tlie opponents contending that the change would be detrimental to the

"industriar* ideas of the early advocates. But on June 19, 1885, Governor 
Qs^esby approved the bill which changed the name to the "University of 
Illinois.'* 

In this same year the State Laboratory of Natural History was transferred 
to the University from Normal. This laboratory was created for the purpose 
of makinff a natural history survey of the state and publishing the results, 
and also for the purpose of fumishmg specimens to the public schools and to 
the state museums. These collections amounted to 75,000 specimens, in round 
numbers, besides 15,000 bottles, vials, and other packages, the contents of 
which were largely unclassified. The apparatus transferred with this material 
consisted chiefly of a very full outfit of collecting apparatus for both terres- 
trial and aquatic work and a considerable amoimt of microscopic materials 
and apparatus. 

During the regime of Dr. Peabody, the University largely extended the 
knowledge of itself among the people of the state principally by means of ad- 
dresses and exhibits. It has been estimated that during the one year of 1888 
over 100 gatherings were attended by members of the faculty and more than 
200 addresses were delivered. The most notable of the technical exhibitions 
were kept on display, -as follows : six months at the State House in Springfield, 
sixteen months at the expositions at New Orleans; at the great educational 
displays at Madison, Wisconsin, and Chicago; and at the state fairs.^ 

Many things conspired to make Dr. Peabodjr's office a. hard one to ad- 
minister. Matters of dicipline, disturbances in the cadet battalion, a radical 
change in the personnel of the Board, all these were circumstances which so 
strengthened the opposition to the Regent as to defeat his re-election in 1891 
for the next biennial period. In June he offered his resignation, which was 
at once accepted. That he succeeded as well as he did is evidence of great 
personal and professional power among men and of exalted devotion to the 
cause he espoused. 

Upon his resignation the Board temporarily appointed a man who has made 
his life a part of the University and who through the varying fortunes of 
the institution has filled many important and critical gaps. That man 
was Dr. Thomas Jonathan Burrill. He first came to the University as a 
special assistant to teach algebra, on the agreement that as soon as botany 
could be provided for, he should have charge of it. Three months after his 
first connection with the institution, T. J. Burrill became Assistant Professor 
of Natural History, which at that time included botany. He became full Pro- 
fessor of Botany and Horticulture in 1871. His professorship began at "sun 
up" and lasted indefinitely and included anything that needed doing. He 
taught most of the day, planted with his own hands, or saw to the planting 
of most of the trees on the campus (after he had laid it out for treatment), 
wrote reports, lectured here and there, served on innumerable committees, 
collected specimens up and down the state, and was even charged at one time 
by the Board with tne sale of a pair of mules, whose labors on the South 
Farm showed that they were not so able to stand the strenuous life as he was. 
After the founding of the Agricultural Experiment Station in 1888, Professor 
Burrill became its horticulturist 

In 1875 Dr. Burrill became the corresponding secretary of the Board of 
Trustees, a position he held for thirteen years. In 1878, he was appointed 
Dean of the College of Science, and for a brief time was Acting Regent. When 
the Regency changed in 1880, Professor Burrill filled the place temporarily. 
Foot years later when the head of the University was absent for a brief time 
on University business he was made presiding officer. Upon the resignation 
of Dr. Peabody in I891, Professor Burrill began an indefinite interregnum. 
Almost his first undertaking was to reorganize the military department, which 
had caused a great deal of trouble in preceding years. He effected such an 
organization that it has never caused any trouble since. 

Students were allowed greater freedom and responded with greater sanity 

*Rep. of UniT. of Fil., 1888, p. 211. 



20 Univeksity of Ilunois 

of conduct Everywhere a better spirit grew up. The old fixed courses of 
study were abolished and substanti^ly our present S3rstem evolved. In Sep- 
tember, 1891, the Board passed the following resolution with regard to fra- 
ternities : 

''Resolved, That the pledge hitherto required for candidates for entry to the 
University in re^d to college fraternities be omitted, and that the subject 
of these fraternities be referred to the committee on rules." 

Durix^ Dr. Burrill's administration the attendance rapidly increased. 
Student or^^anizations were stimulated — ^we find the first University Glee Qub 
organized m October, 1891; the first annual concert of the Illinois Military 
Band given in February, 1892 ; besides the organization of the Mandolin Club. 
Chemistry Qub, Art Club, Students' Assembly for "Socisd and Intellectual 
Purposes," etc. 

But perhaps the point of greatest triumph in his administration was in 
the finances. The Board had been accustomed to asking support for the 
University in a most modest way, and the result was that it had been doled 
out to them in fifty-cent pieces. Dr. Burrill advocated asking for everything 
wanted, leaving the legislature to cut down the request if it saw fit. Prom 
the appeal to the legislature in 1893 came the appropriation for the engineer- 
ing building, and greatly increased sums for other expenses. The total 
appropriation rose from |i47,ooo to $295,000.^ 

Several new courses of study had their origin in this period. The School 
of Philosophy and Pedagogy, included in the College of Literature and Arts, 
was organized, as well as the Graduate School. The department of Municipal 
and Sanitary Engineering and Architectural Engineering were likewise creat- 
ed. In January, 1893, the agricultural short course was offered. The office 
of Registrar was provided for August i6th of the same year, and the ap- 
pointment of W. L. Pillsbury was made. In 1894 ^n appropriation of $1,800 
was made for a bioloi?ical station at Havana and $1,200 for a summer school 
at the University. The first summer session began the following June and 
continued four weeks ; thirty-eight persons were enrolled, twenty-six of whom 
were teachers from over the state. Members of the regular faculty gave the 
instruction and the full resources of the University, in the way of laboratories 
libraries, and apparatus were made available for the work. 

Although the preparatory class served as an important feeder for the 
University it was not the intention of the governing boards that this class 
should be largdy increased. In March, 1894, however, the Board established 
a two years' course in the preparatory school. Preparatory classes had been 
taught almost from the beginning of the institution, but with the anticipation 
that the time would soon come when such instruction mi^ht be wholly left to 
the high schools. If it had seemed possible, the University authorities would 
gladly have abandoned the preparatory work, but if, as it appeared, it must be 
continued, better provision had to be made for it Hence, a principal was 
appointed, teachers were employed, and a course of instruction mapped out. 

While the faculty confined themselves in the main to tmdergraduate in- 
struction, the graduate department was slowly taking shape. The first fel- 
lowships were instituted in 1892, and in 1894 the faculty was authorized to 
define the requirements for doctors' degrees. 

The University gradually extended its relations with the public school 
system of the state through its accredited schools, and also by the aid of the 
county superintendents who conducted examinations for scholarships, and by 
its course of University extension lectures. A great change came over the 
state in its attitude toward the University. Dr. Burrill's policy was one of 
open discussion, friendly co-operation with all educational and other interests 
ox the state; and had much to do with allaying opix)sition on all sides. 

Forty-four years is a long time to serve an institution, and when that ser- 
vice has been rendered with such faithfulness, such kindly benevolence, and 
such utter unselfishness as in the case of Dr. Burrill, the institution should

certainlj honor the man. It did so at the 4i8t oonunencement by conferring 
upon him the highest honor that the University can give, the honorary de- 
gree of LL.D. Although Dr. Burrill retired from active duty Sept i, 1912, he 
retained his o&ct in the Natural Histoi^ Building, thus the institution is still 
to have the benefits of the counsel of this superior man whose visions are not, 
even now, of the past University, but who is still planning for the future, still 
bnovant, still optimistic 

Various causes delayed the action in electing a new Regent, but it was 
felt that the important thing was to find the rignt man, no matter how much 
time it might require, rather than to hasten the dection. Great care was taken 
in the matter and after three years of inquiry and discussion, the Board ten- 
dered the appointment, April 13, iQsM, to Andrew Sloan Draper of New Yoiic 
The title of Kegent as applied to the chief executive of a collegiate institution 
was found to be confusing since the term was generally used for a member of 
the board of control — a trustee. The legislative enactment founding the 
University designated the executive by this name and it was so used from 
that time up to the appointment of Dr. Draper. With his appointment the 
Board of Trustees gave authority for the title "President" to be used instead 
of the title "Regent as given in the University charter. The time fixed for 
the beginning of Dr. Draper's services was August i, 1894, and upon that 
date he assumed the duties of this office. 

The third president of the University was of sturdy New England stock 
and was bom June 21, 1848^ at Westford, New York. He was educated for 
the profession of law in the Albany Law School of Union College, gradu- 
ating in 1871. For nearly a dozen years after his graduation in law, he prac- 
ticed his profession. He was a member of the New York state legislature in 
1881, a Judge of the United States Court of Alabama Claims from i88d. to 
1886^ and State Superintendent of Public Instruction from I886 to 1892. 
He received the honorary degree of doctor of laws from Colgate in 1889, 
from Columbia in 1903 and from the University of Illinois in 1905.^ For 
two years previous to his coming to the University he was superintendent 
of the public schools of Qeveland, Ohio. 

President Draper did not aspire to the presidency of the University; in- 
stead, he was sotu^ht out by the Board. He savs, "I had serious misgivings 
about the advisability of accepting the post I doubted my adaptability to it" 
The fact that he was not a university man caused him to hesitate. While for 
a lon^ time he had followed educational thought, he had not had much to 
do with the higher grades of college and university work. ^ But his wide ex- 
perience with men, in politics and educational work, and his ability as an or- 
ganizer, aided greatly u his mana^;ement of University affairs. 

President Draper early sided with the many friends of the University who 
felt that, while the institution was orgsinized primarily to educate people for 
industrial vocations, it was not doing its whole duty as lon^ as its efforts 
were confined within these limits. Conferences were held with the trustees 
and faculties as to the best means of beginning departments of law, medicine, 
and teadiin^. The result of this activity was that during his administration 
the University organized and established a number of new schools and de- 
partments. 

The first new school was that of Pharmacy. The Chicago College of 
Pharma^ made a proposition to turn over and donate its school and property 
to the University on the provision that it be maintained as a part of tht 
Universi^ of Illinois. The Board accepted the proposition at its April meet- 
ing, 1896,' and on May i, this College became the School of Pharmacy. 

Negotiations looking toward the affiliation of the College of Physicians and 
Surgeons of Chicago with the University, which had been going on for sev- 
eral 3rears, were concluded by the Board of Trustees March 9, 1897.*

On April 21, 1897, it became the School of Medicine of the University of 
Illinois. It was one of the foremost of such schools of the Middle West Its 
buildings were substantially constructed and its location directly opposite the 
Cook County Hospital, and in the very center of opportunities for medical 
research, gave the students unusual clinical privileges. The first year there 
were 409 registered at this medical college. The institution was entirely 
self-supporting, and continued a part of the University of Illinois until June 
30, 1912, when the renewal of the lease was refused on the part of the College 
of Physicians and Surgeons. 

The organization of a School of Law was a matter which had long been 
in the minds of the authorities, and nearly two years previous to the opening 
of the school, the Board of Trustees had determined that the step should be 
taken. Pursuant to their action of Dec S, 1896,^ the School of Law was or- 
ganized and instruction began September 13, 1897. The formal opening was 
through a public meeting held in the chapel of the University, which was 
addressed by Justice Jacob W. Wilkin of the Supreme Court of the state. 
Many members of the local bar, and prominent citizens, as well as students, 
attended the meeting. The facultjr of the School of Law was composed from 
the beginning of professors devoting their entire time to instruction, and of 
other professors who taught related subjects in the University, such as con- 
stitutional law, the history of jurisprudence, etc., and non-resident lecturers. 
The course of study at first covered two years, but a very short time later it 
was re-arranged on the three-year basis. On February 9, 1900, the School of 
Law became the College of Law ; and on the same date the School of Medicine 
became the College of Medicine.' 

In 1897, the School of Library Economy which had been established in 
1893 at the Armour Institute of Technology in Chica^ was transferred to 
the University; the Director of that school was appomted librarian of the 
University Library; and the State Library School was opened. There were 
but two other such schools in the country and no other west of the Allegheny 
Mountains. Admission to the school was placed upon the same basis as ad- 
mission to other departments of the University. 

From time to time some slight provision had been made for musical in- 
struction and in 1895 the work had been reorganized and enlarged. By vote 
of the trustees on June 9, 1897, the department became the School of Music 
with a separate faculty and organization.* Instruction was given in violin, 
piano, and voice, and a course was offered leading to the degree of bachelor 
of music 

The adequate supervision of social interests was felt to require distinct 
administrative attention, and at the March meeting, 1897, the Board of Trus- 
tees created a Dean of Women's department and appointed a Dean in the 
person of Dr. Violet D. Jayne of Minneapolis, Minnesota.* Events proved 
the selection to be a wise one. In 1901, a similar measure was adopted with 
reference to male students,, by the appointment of Professor Thomas Arkle 
Clark, Dean of Undergraduates, who served in this capacity until 1909, when 
he became Dean of Men. 

In 1899 some additional courses were offered in railway engineering. Two 
years before this the Big Four Railway Company had built a dyna- 
mometer car for the use of the University upon its system, and in 1900 the 
Illinois Central Railroad did the same thing, and decided improvements 
were made upon the first car offered. 

In the summer of 1899 the University made an earnest effort to establish 
the summer session. Some such efforts had been made years before, but with- 
out much success. It secured the attendance of 148 students during a term 
of nine weeks. The work was satisfactorily initiated and the results were

considered quite substantial. The work offered was largely of a character 
which would appeal to teachers in the high schools of the state, and persons 
of this class responded in considerable numbers. Students were allowed to do 
work which might count towards a University degree, and many availed 
themselves of the privilege. 

The work of the State Entomologist's office had been done at the Univer- 
sity of Illinois since January, 1885. By legislative enactment in iSgg it be- 
came permanently established at the University, the trustees of which are 
required by that act to provide for the Entomologist and his assistants such 
omce and laboratory rooms as may be necessary to the performance of their 
duties. 

On March 12, 1901,^ a School of Dentistry was organized as a depart- 
ment in the College of Medicine. In the following fall the school opened with 
an enrollment of 134 students. Some four years later the name was changed 
to the College of Dentistry. This collie remained an integral part of the 
University until June 30, 1912, when it was discontinued. 

The General Assembly in 1900 made an appropriation for the establish- 
ment of courses of training for business, and, in accordance with that action, 
the trustees approved the organization of the Courses in Business Adminis- 
tration (frequently given elsewhere under the name of School of Commerce). 
The department opened in 1902 with two new professors; one called from 
Yale, and the other from Tome Institute. 

One year later the special appropriation by Congress to the state made 
possible the founding of the Engineering Experiment Station. Within its 
scope were embraced several problems connected with architecture, and civil, 
electrical, mechanical, and sanitary engineering. The quarters were in the 
University buildings and shops. 

President Draper managed in a large degree to put the University in a 
more favorable light before the people of the state, who in many cases had 
looked upon it with disfavor or with indifference. One of the menaces of the 
University's power to do good was the claim often made through die secular 
newspapers of the state that there was little religious spirit in the University. 
President Draper early began placing the facts before the people to show 
that this was untrue. Statistics from the Young Men's and Young Women's 
Christian Associations refuted these charges; greater efforts were made by 
the several church denominations ; and near the end of his administration the 
percentage of men and women who were parties to the great Student Volun- 
teer Movement for Christian Missions was shown to be greater than in any 
other state institution. 

President Draper overcame much of the opposition which had existed in a 
measure between the University and other colleges of the state by showing 
in addresses and papers that all of these colleges and the state's big school 
were needed to do the work which should be done. 

The increase in attendance at the University during the decade from 1894 
to 1904 was marvelous. The attendance at Urbana increased from 750 in 
1893-4 to 31CO in 1902-3, and during the latter year there were about 900 in 
the Chicago departments. The number of instructors increased proportion- 
ately. Especially striking was the growth of the College of Agriculture. In 
the early nineties the attendance of regularly matriculated students had almost 
reached the vanishing point, a result due partly to defective equipment and 
partly to the prevailing skepticism among the farmers themselves with regard 
to the possibilities of scientific instruction in agriculture. During this period 
new interest sprang up, the appropriations increased, and in 1903, for the 
first time, there came to the University a substantial number of agricul- 
tural students. 

Not only were the appropriations increased for the College of Ag^cul- 
ture, but there was also a general increase throughout the University. For 
the biennium commencing July i, 1895, the appropriation for the general cur-

rent expense was $i8o»ooo, and for the following two-^ear periods, re- 
spectively. $220,000; $270,000; $350*000; and $500,000; makinf: a total in ten 
years of $1,520,000/ In addition to these increased 24>propriations for current 
expenses, there were large appropriations for buildings. 

The Library building, dedicated at commencement in 1897, was occupied 
in the September following. It was both designed and constructed by grad- 
uates of the University of Illinois. The interior decorations were by Mr. 
Newton A. Wells, and it is said that they present the best example of a 
pure Byzantine style to be found in the United States. The architects were 
Professors N. Chfford Rickcr and James M. White. A new astronomical 
observatory was completed, equipped, and occupied. Under the dome a fine 
twelve-inch telescope was erected by the foremost telescope builders in the 
United States. Another important addition to' the group of University 
buildings was the electrical engineering building located just north of Engi- 
neering: Hall; and in the Central Heating Plant located to the east of the 
Electrical building— ^th designed by professors in the department of Archi- 
tecture. All the University buildings are heated by the Central Heating 
Plant The pipes are carried in brick tunnels a third of a mile hi length and 
large enough to enable a person walking erectly to pass through them. 

At the close of the year 1900, the main group of agricultural buildings 
was completed on the South Campus, from an appropriation of $150,000. 
This was the first time the state had expended any considerable amount of 
money to provide an agricultural plant. 

Other buildings erected during President Draper's administration were a 
new wood shop on the site of the old one which had been burned, a Presi- 
dent's house, a splendid gymnasium, an excellent building for applied me- 
chanics, a testing laboratory, and University water station. South of the 
Science building a substantial and capacious dtemical laboratory was con- 
structed. The old chemical laboratory was remodeled and given over to the 
College of Law. The building of the College of Medicine in Chicago was 
largely reconstructed, and the West Division high school property was also 
acquired and put into excellent condition. In 18^ a new gymnasium was 
installed on the upper floor of the old mechanical building. It was not ideal 
in appearance, but was adequately equipped and well suited for practical use. 
It was provided with a very satisfactory equipment of lockers, and also with 
reasonable toilet and bathing accommodations. Illinois field was considerably 
enlarged and much improved in appearance. The unsightly board fence was 
removed and a handsome iron one put in its place. The running track was 
enlarged so as to be a full third of a mile in length. 

The legislature of 1903 made provision for the establishment of the 
Woman's building, three agricultural buildings, a foundry, and a steam labora- 
tory.* 

A new greenhouse was constructed and occupied opposite the new electri- 
cal building and added an attractive feature to the University grounds. In 
connection with the Electrical building and the Central Heatmg Plant there 
was installed and put into operation an electrical lighting plant. It supplied 
arc lights upon the campus and also incandescent lights in the buildings 
which are wired for the purpose. It was the policy to light all the University 
buildings from this center as soon as possible. 

Lightning strudc the chemical building in August, 1896. The roof and 
practicallv the whole of the interior of the building were destroyed. Nothing 
remained but the four walls. Steps were at once taken to renew the roof 
and tiie interior was replaced in a very hasty, rough, and unsubstantial man- 
ner because of lack of time and funds to do the work properly. A year later, 
in June, 1897, the Natural History building was struck by lightning. The re- 
sults were not so serious as with the chemical laboratory, but fire followed and 
not only the roof but also the upper portions of the interior, and the building

and its contents, were seriously injured by water. The damage to the latter 
building was repaired in time to prevent any interruption of University work. 

On June 9, igoo, the oldest building on the campus, which accommodated 
the wood shops, testing laboratory, ^draulic laboratory, repair shops, and 
gymnasium was totally destroyed by fire. The building was an old one, yet 
substantial and exceedingly useful, and housed important interests. 

Perhaps the event which caused the most serious concern on the part of 
the administration was the defalcation of the Treasurer in February, 1897. 
All the cash balances of the several funds were involved. All the appro- 
priations had been collected from the State Treasurer to the end of die year, 
and there were no means which could be applied to salaries and other ex- 
penses. Fortunately the legislature was in session and official notice was 
brought to the attention of ti^t body, which came to the relief of the Univer- 
sity by assuming charge of the wlrale matter and restoring the funds com- 
pletely. 

President Draper showed the keenest personal interest in students and 
student activities. The united action of the students in all important meas- 
ures to be advanced, the kindly and frank treatment of each other in their 
personal and class relations, and the hearty and Ic^al support of all Univer- 
sity interests were immense Actors in the control and enlargement of the 
institution. The adoption of orange and blue as the University colors by 
the p^eral assembly of students within a month after the beginning of the 
administration was a step. Encouragement was ^ven to athletics by the em- 
ployment of coaches and University instructors in the department, and they 
were made more popular by the President's attendance upon the games. The 
grounds were b^utified and made attractive by making open spaces for 
sward, the paving of walks and drives, and the planting of a colony of squir- 
rds upon tiie campus. 

While President Draper stood for what furnished students social and 
physical enjoyment, at the same time he was a rigid disciplinarian. The en- 
forcement of authority has been made easier down to the present time because 
of President Draper's successful stand in administering justice after a certain 
class riot, which occasioned considerable difficulty. 

Dr. Draper resigned in March, 1904; his resignation to take effect after 
two months' leave of absence, thus practically rounding out ten years of 
service. They were a splendid ten years for the University of Illinois. 
Things were favorable when he began. The excellent opportunity for the 
chief executive was turned to the best account. He quickly appreciated the 
situation and with abundant forcefulpess and admiratue generalship, carried 
the institution forward in its remarkable career. Having been elected to the 
newly created office- of Commissioner of Education in Uie state of New York, 
he gave up his work in Illinois with abundantly demonstrated evidences of 
its success during the ten years of his presidency. 

On November 5, 1904, Dr. Edmund Janes James, the fourth president 
of the University, assumed the duties of that office. His formal installation 
took place in October of the following year. On this occasion delegates 
were present from a large number of American and foreign universities, 
making the exercises of unusual interest. Perhaps one of the most striking 
features was a series of conferences on various questions of educational pol- 
icy. 

President James is the first native of Illinois to be elected to the presi- 
dency of its state university. Moreover, he has served the two other great 
universities of the state, having presided over Northwestern for a time and 
having been for six years a professor in the University of Chicago. He is a 
descendant of j^ioneer Methodist ministers and was bom May 24, 1^5, at 
Jacksonville, Ilhnois. He prepared for college in the Model Department of 
the nimois State Normal School and in the fall foIlowin|^ his graduation 
there, became a student at Northwestern University. After spending one 
year at this institution and (Mie year at Harvard, he entered the University 



26 Univbrsity op Illinois 

of Halle in 1875, where two years later, at the age of twenty-two, he re- 
ceived his doctoPs degree. He first taught as prinapal of the high school at 
Evanston, going from there to accept a similar position in the High School 
Department of the Illinois Normal University. In 1883 he became Professor 
of Public Administration in the University of Pennsylvania. While there he 
was for a time secretary of the graduate faculty and organized the instruction 
in this department. He was also Director of the Wharton School of Finance 
and Economy. 

In 1896 he accepted a position as Professor of Public Administration and 
Director of the University Extension Division in the University of Chicago. 
Six years later he resigned this position to become President of Northwest- 
em University, and in 1904 he again resigned his position in order to accept 
a similar one at the University of Illinois. 

He received the honorary degree LL.D. from Cornell College (Iowa) in 
ig02f from Wesleyan, 1903, Queen's College also in 1903, and from Harvard 
University in 1909. 

The progress of the University during the last few years has been rapid 
and uninterrupted. Opportunities for advanced work in nearly every depart- 
ment of the University have been materially increased. Perl^ps the organi- 
zation of the Graduate School as a separate administrative body was a step 
which aided most greatly along this line. The legislatures of 1907 and 190Q 
appropriated for the work of the school a sum of $50,000 a year. This 
was a step unprecedented in any state and the act was warmly welcomed 
by educational authorities. 

Hand in hand with graduate work goes the necessity for a strong library. 
While not yet all that could be desired, the University library has likewise 
progressed. The number of volumes m 1904 was 63,724; the number of 
pamphlets, 14,512; while on June 30, 1912, the general University library 
contained 212,700 voltunes, aside frcMn about 23,000 pamphlets, pieces of sheet 
music, maps, and photographs. 

The courses in Business Administration were established in a modest way 
in igoo. Five years later an effort was made to put the work on a better 
basis, and the legislature gave the School an annual income of $25,000, and 
since that time it has become one of the strongest in the country. The last 
legislature recognized the importance to the state of this department in the 
substantial way of making an appropriation for a Commerce building. On 
May 21, 1912, occurred the laying of the corner-stone of this building. 

The department of Household Science has taken its place as, on the whole, 
4he foremost university department of its kind. In 1910, for the first time 
in any university, was offered a complete four-year course in household 
management, as distinguished from Household Science. 

The Liberal Arts colleges are making a definite effort not only for the pro- 
motion of research, but also toward the uplifting of secondary education by 
giving to prospective teachers opportunities for higher work and better prep- 
aration. 

During the year 1905, the Trustees created a School of Education. In 
some respects this was a grouping together of the courses in the University 
which pertained most directly to the future work of the teacher. All in- 
structors who offer courses primarily intended for prospective teachers are 
on the faculty of this school. In framing its organization, the presidents of 
the normal schools of the state were consulted, and their advice has proved 
most helpful on many important points. 

The legislature in 1905 made the small appropriation of $5,000 for the 
establishment of courses in ceramics, in response to a reouest from tht vari- 
ous ceramic societies of the state, who asked that the University ^ve 
thorough and reliable instruction in the geology of clay working materials, 
their origin, classification, physical and chemical properties, and their behavior 
under such influences as are met with during the processes of manufacture. 
Courses in ceramics and ceramic engineering, supplemented by a course in 



Historical Skbtch 27 

cement making, were organized and have become regular four-year courses 
in the College of Science. It is a School which has proved itself of much 
benefit to the people of the state in a number of ways. It has found a method 
of making high grade brick and tile from material before regarded as wortii- 
less; it has shown, in the manufacture of enamel brick, that Illinois clays 
may be used more profitably than those of other states ; it has compounded a 
white and cheaper grade of stoneware ; and it has given to the people f orm- 
obe for compoundmg crystalline and fritted glazes which heretofore had 
been kept secret^ 

In the same y«ar the State Geological Survey and the State Water Survey 
became scientific departments connected with the University, llie legislature 
created the State Geological Survey as a bureau of the University, with the 
objects and duties usual to such surveys. The University has furnished 
suitable quarters for the offices of this survey, and it has found in the lab- 
oratories of the University a most valuable assistance in the prosecution of 
its work. The presence in the University of men of the scientinc standing of 
those engaged in the Survey has been of very substantial, though indirect, 
value to the scientific advance in these various subjects. The State Water 
Survey had for its purpose the stud^^of the water supply of the state in all 
its aspects. Its work has been both m the field and in the laboratories. 

The College of Agrictdture and the Experiment Station have produced a 
profound influence upon the farming practice of the state in the last ten years. 

The main contribution of the College of Engineering, in the same period, 
as distinguislhed from what it has done hitherto^ probably lies in the stimulus 
given to industrial research through the Engineering Experiment Station. 
As the work and purposes of the Station have become better understood in 
the state, the officers m charge have been. flooded with applications for help 
hr beyond their ability to meet 

On January 50, 1906, the Board of Trustees created a department of Rail- 
way Engineering. One year later, supplementing that action, the School of 
Railway Engineering and Administration waiS established. This School 
offers courses in railway, civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering as 
well as in management 

A Mine Rescue Station was established at the University in 1909. It is 
in co-operation with the State Geological Survey and the College of Engi- 
neering of the University. Its purpose is to demonstrate to mine operators 
and others the value of oxygen helmets and resuscitation apparatus in 
connection with rescue work in mines, as an aid to fighting mine fires, and 
in the opening of mines which have been sealed on account of fires. The 
Station not only gives demonstration but also tmdertakes to train men in 
the use of such apparatus, the service being given gratuitously, and as far 
as possible, to all interested within the limits of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, 
Iowa, Missouri, and western Kentucky. 

Nor is the University dependent only upon these inward workings for 
signs of its prosperity. There are many outward signs as well. A splendid 
advance be^an in the appropriations for buildings in 1889 with that for the 
Natural History Hall. During President Draper's administration, this ad- 
vance gathered force, until with President James we find the buildings go- 
ing op, not one at a time, but by the twos and threes. The estimated value 
of the buildings on the campus at the beginning of this period was $1,127,- 
500; while at Qie present time (1912) the estimate is $2,229,000. Among the 
more important ones constructed during the past ten years, is the Auditorium, 
costixig $100,000, which has been completed and in constant use from its 
dedication in November, 1907. It proves a great help to University life. The 
Physics building has been erected with an appropriation of $250,000, and 
an addition built to the Natural History building from an appropriation 
of $1501,000. Abraham Lincoln Hall has been constructed at a cost of ^50,-

000 — the name being chosen for the building because the appropriation was 
obtained durin|[ the centennial year of the birth of Abraham Lmcoln. The 
Woman^s building has been erected from an appropriation of $80,000, and 
the University Power House from an appropriation of $75,000. Among 
other structures that have grown upon the campus in this period are the 
Mechanical Engineering Laboratory, Greenhouses, buildings for Farm Me- 
chanics, Ceramics, and the State Entomologist 

For the biennium bcfi;inning July i, 1903, the total amount of appropria- 
tion was $1,152,400, while for the biennium b^'nning July i, 1911, the Uni- 
versity received $3,5i9>30o; something like ^35,000 of this appropriation 
being for buildings and permanent improvements. Among the more im- 
portant buildings to be constructed from this i^tpropriation are the foUow- 
mg: 

Armory $100,000 

Engineering Building and Ground 200,000 

School of Commerce Building 125,000 

Addition to Woman's Building 125,000 

Stock Judging Pavilion So/xx) 

Horticultural Building 50,000 

Not only was this large appropriation made to the University for the 
present biennium, but also a bill was passed providing for a one mill tax 
on all the assessed property of the state for the support of the University.^ 
On the present taxing basis, the law should yield about two and one-quarter 
millions of dollars a year. This sum is not automati^ly appropriated to 
University uses, although it can be used for no other puipose; however, only 
such a sum will be appropriated biepnially from it as the General Assembly is 
convinced is needed by die institution for which it is collected. This means 
that the ambitious interests within the University will reach an agreement on 
the campus; the budget will be made here; and the united requests, within 
the sum available, can be presented as a unit to the legislative committee. 
The one mill tax puts the regular support of the University upon a safer 
foundation, and assures a regular income. No other event in the history 
of the institution is more important than the passage of this bill 

Altogether aside from the increase in attendance caused by the addition 
of new schools and new courses, the increased numbers at the University of 
Illinois is striking. For the year 1903-4, the total attendance was 3,594 (in- 
cluding the Academy), while for the year I9ii-'i2, the total attendance was 
5,200. By vote of the Trustees the Academy, which had existed since 1876, 
as a one, two, or three year preparatory school, was discontinued at the end 
of the school year 1911. 

With the increased appropriations and the increased attendance has also 
come a material strengAening of the teaching force. Salaries of men of 
professional rank have been increased fifty per cent, and distinguished 
scholars have been brought to the University from all over the world. 

Naturally the increased attendance has meant increased activity in all 
kinds of student life. Fraternities and sororities have almost doubled in 
number. The installation of a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, Sigma Xi, Tau 
Beta Pi, and other honorary organizations is a tribute of the esteem which 
sister institutions in the country hold for Illinois. Interest has developed 
in debate and oratory and at the same time a record has been maintained 
in a^letics of which Illinoisans may be proud. One of the most compre- 
hensive organizations within the University perhaps is the Illinois Union. 
It came into existence at a mass meeting of die students on March 3, 1909. 
The Union is an organization of all Illinois men, whether graduate, under- 
graduate, or faculty, whose purpose is to develop good fellowship among 
the students and to promote Illinois spirit by ^1 possible means. 

One of the sources of strength to any institution is the good will and 

^Riep. of Univ. of 111., 1910, |>. 177*

co-operation of its former students in all the work of that institution. The 
interest and pride of the alumni of the University of Illinois in its work 
seem steadily and plainly to increase. The Alumni Record made its first 
appearance in 1906 and contained an account of the life and work of each 
graduate of the institution up to that time, as well as similar accounts of 
the faculty and trustees. The 1912 publication is an attempt to continue the 
good work. 

With the growth and variety of University interests, the problem of 
administration became more and more complicated. While in the early days 
matters of discipline were settled by the faculty, and if this settlement was 
unsatisfactory, the complainants often carried their woes to the Board of 
Trustees, at the present time the Council of Administration, which is made 
up of the President, Vice President, and the deans, has complete control of 
discipline. The General Faculty has given way to the University Senate 
consisting of the menri>ers of the Council and sul full professors; although 
each college maintains its separate faculty, whose action m important matters 
requires the ratification of the Senate or the Council. 

One of the strongest evidences of educational progress of any univer- 
sity lies in the increased estimation in which she is held by her sister in- 
stitutions throughout the country. Dean Kinley, in writing of this, sadd, 
"Our admission to the Association of American Universities and the conse- 
quent recognition of our graduate work by foreign universities, expressions 
of opinion in the newspapers aAd magazines and personally by distmguished 
educators, are all cumulative evidence that we have advanced to a higher 
educational plane in the opinion of those most able to judge." 

BIBLIOGRAPHICAL NOTE. 

As yet no adequate history of the University of Illinois has been pub- 
lished. The chief sources of information for such a work may be found 
in die various official publications of the University, chief among which are 
the Reports of the Board of Trustees. These reports have been published 
since 1868, annually up to 1876, and biennially thereafter. In these reports 
may also be found historical addresses given by Regents Gregory and Pea- 
body. The Illinois School Reports published by the Superintendent of Pub- 
lic Instruction contain the biennial reports of the R^^ent or President of the 
University. Its development may be traced, too, through the annual catalog, 
first labeled the Annual Circular, then the Catalog, and finally the Register 
of the University of Illinois. These volumes have very brief historical 
sketches which form a sort of backbone of the important events from the 
b^^inning of the University. A more complete historical sketch may be 
found in "Facts for Freshmen Concerning the University of Illinois" pub- 
lished by Dean Thomas A. Clark and Arthur Ray Warnock, in die fall of 
1911. Interesting articles of an historical nature have appeared from time to 
time in the Alumni Quarterly, chief among which are a series entided 
"Makers of the University." The Laws of the United States and State of 
Illinois Concerning the University of Illinois are a collection of the acts of 
the Federal Congress and the state legislature relating to the University of 
Illinois. 

Some idea of the work of particular departments may be gathered through 
the various scientific publications — such as, the bulletins of the Engineering 
and Agricultural Experiment Stations. In the University Studies are contri- 
butions from various departments of the University, literary as well as 
scientific 

In the various student publications may be gleaned aspects of student 
life not brought out by the official records. Among the most important 
are The Daily Illini, first published monthly as The Student, but now 
issued six times a^ week during the academic year ; The Illio, an annual 
publication of the junior class; The Illinois Magaeine, a literary monthly;

the Agriculturist, containing contributions from students and instructors in 
the College of Agriculture, and the Technograph, containing matter of similar 
nature for the College of Engineering, all serve to bring out the various 
phases of student activity.

ANNALS OF THE UNIVERSITY 



1862 

An act donating public lands, on the ratio of 30,000 acres for each Sena- 
tor and Representative, to the states and territories whidi would provide 
colleges for the benefit of Agriculture and the Mechanic Arts was passed by 
Congress, and approved on July 2, 1862. Under this grant Illinois would 
receive property to the value of $600,000.00 (480,000 acres) the interest on 
which was to be applied for these purposes. The grant had to be accepted 
and applied to its uses before July, 1867, or it would have reverted to the 
government 

1863 

The Legislature of Illinois accepted the grant Feb. 14, 1863, and discussed 
the matter for some time without being able to come to any agreement on 
the details of the proposed college or on its location. Some wished to divide 
the money up among the existing colleges, provided they established schools 
of tb(is nature; some to establish a school to teach Agriculture and the Me- 
chanic Arts ; and some to attach a new school to the Normal University. 

1864 

At the State Fair held in Decatur in 1864, a committee was appointed by 
the State Agricultural Society to take the matter up and present some defi- 
nite plan to the Legislature. This Committee was composed of Wm. H. Van 
Epps, Prof. J. B. Turner, A. B. McConmell, B. G. Roots, and John P. Rey- 
nolds. They drew up a bill as an expression of the views of the farmers, and 
presented it to the Legislature in 1865, and again in 1867. 

1866 

State meeting of all those interctsted in the organization of the proposed 
Industrial University held at Bloomington. Meetmg recommended that the 
state build only one university. 

Sept 21 — Notice was published of an informal election to be held in Cham- 
paign cotmt^ on Oct 10, by order of the board of Supervisors. The voters 
were to decide whether or not the county should appropriate $100,000.00 worth 
of Champaign county bonds "to secure the location of the Illinois Industrial 
University in this county." 

Oct 5 — Proposition of Champaign and Urbapa was to purchase the build- 
ing then standing, called 'The Urbana and Champaign Institute Building," 
with the eight acres on which it stood, at a cost of $30,000.00, then use the 
other $70,000.00 to buy more land and secure the location of the University 
over the other contestants — Bloomington, Jacksonville, and other towns Had 
made offers. The Champaign papers said that they could thus give this build- 
ing, 1,000 acres for a farm, 100 acres for a "garden-patch" and still have 
$40,000.00 left 

The building was erected in 1861, supposedly at a cost of $i75,ooaoo, and 
was said to be "one of the largest and most substantial buildings in the State, 
second only to the Normal University." It stood at the north end of what 
IB now Illinois Field; facing University Avenue. The Main part of the struct- 
ure was one hundred twenty-five feet front, forty feet in depth, and five stor-

ies high. From the center projected a wing forty-four by seventy feet, four 
stories high. It contained ninety dormitories, each ten by fifteen, "suitable 
rooms for principals, professors, etc." and "accommodations for 800 students." 

Oct. I2j-Retums of the election on the question of the bond issue show 
the vote to have been : For, 1,601 ; against, 1,035 — ^majority for, 566. 

"Urbana and Champaign were unanimously in favor of the measure. A 
considerable opposition was manifested in some of the country towns, how- 
ever." This opposition was due to the fact that the smaller towns regarded 
the whole thing as a scheme on the part of Urbana and Champaign to make 
the entire county pay for a school which would benefit these two communities 
only. 

1867 

Jan. 10 — Mr. Tincher (Senator from the Seventh District) introduced 
into the Senate a bill for "an act to provide for the organization, endowment, 
and maintenance of the Illinois Industrial University." This bill provided, 
among other things, that the Institution should be located at Champaign. At 
the same date Senator Fuller (Twenty- third district) introduced a bill simi- 
lar to Mr. Tincher's except that it provided for the location of the University 
by a commission to be appointed by the Governor. These two bills were read 
twice and ordered printed. Jan. 11 — Both bills in the House were introduced, 
the Champaign bill being offered by Mr. Griggs from that district. The 
Senate at this time voted that the entire grant should be applied to one insti- 
tution. Jan. 25 — ^The (Governor approved a bill giving any county, city, town- 
ship, or incorporated town authority to levy taxes or voluntary subscriptions 
for the purpose of securing the location of the University. 

Feb. I — Mr. Tincher moved to amend the Fuller Bill by striking out the 
section providing for a committee to locate the college. This amendment 
was carried by a vote of fifteen to nine. Feb. 22 — House Bill amended by 
adding to the offer contained (the Institute property) therein (as require- 
ments for ^e location) 810 acres of land, $50,ooo.cx) worth of freight' (appro- 
priated by the Illinois Central), $100,000.00 in Champaign County Bonds, and 
$2,000.00 in fruit, shade, and ornamental trees and shrubbery from Dunlap's 
nursery, making a total of $450,000.00 estimated valuation of property. This 
bill as amended passed the House on the same day. Its provisions were that 
the institution should be located in Urbana. The trustees were to be ap- 
pointed by the Governor, with approval of the Senate, five from each grand 
judicial division, and one from each congressional district. They were to 
serve for six years, without salary, the first appointment to draw lots, one- 
third to serve two, one-third four, and one-third six years. The trustees 
were to elect a Regent to serve two years, a Treasurer, and a Recording Sec- 
retary, and were to provide buildings, teachers, etc Students were to be at 
least fifteen years old. Each county was entitled to a scholarship for de- 
scendants of soldiers and seamen. No degrees were to be conferred on gradu- 
ates. The Regent, with the Governor, the Superintendent of Public Instruc- 
tion, and the President of the State Agricultural Society were to be ex officio 
members of the Board. The instructors were "to teach in the most thorough 
manner such branches of learning as are related to Agriculture and the Me- 
chanic Arts and Military Tactics, without excluding other scientific and 
dassical studies." The college year was to extend through six autumn and 
winter months so that the students could go home for the six spring and 
summer months or stay at the University and pursue optional studies "pro- 
vided tiiat no student shall at any time be allowed to remain in or about the 
University in idleness, or without full mental or industrial occupation." This 
Act passed the House by a vote of sixty-six to ten, the Senate by eighteen to 
seven, and was approved Feb. 28, 1867. The immediate result was a huge 
celebration in Champaign. 

IVfar. 8 — Passage of Supplemental Bill, providing that on the failure of the
